It was interesting to see how the mill in Rishworth might have looked and what children would have done there. We also learnt about school lessons and living in the Apprentice House.

The weather has certainly been tropical recently and Class One have spent a lot of time outdoors exploring and investigating. The warm days have also helped us to understand more about our “Rainforest” topic in Class One. We loved our trip to Tropical World in Leeds to find out more about the creatures and plants that live in the rainforest.
